+1 on that WT....I've enjoyed them every time they have come to Buffalo. Not so sure they are worth the $25 I paid, but the three times I have seen them I thought they were great and had a a great time - even if they are a cover band.

JGB is by far the best "cover" band out there imo. I was lucky enough to catch them last spring and had a great show. Can't ever say that about Ratdog though. I've seen them twice - and left early both times.

Ah, didn't realize--"JGB" is a cvbd, like DSO, but dedicated (duh) to Jerry & his bands? Cool; do they focus on a particular era, arrangement-wise? IE, I assume they don't go w the spartan keybd player/lead player only, or the bluegrass band styles? More along the line of the mid/late 70s four person lineups?

Will keep an eye open.

It's Melvin and crew. They do classic late 80's early 90's type of shows. Dave A'Bear is awesome(the lead vocals and guitar). Here's a clip from the show I went too - It's Melvin's solo from That's What Love Will Make you Do:
